Congrats to the "losers". I gained .6 of a lb. last week

I know where I went wrong! I ate out several times and severely miscalculated the points, so today I bought the Dining Out Companion to help me be more realistic. Another mistake was thinking I could mentally keep track of points. Another BIG mistake. I need to be religious in writing in my log.

Oddly enough I'm not too terribly upset. I'm still down over 10 lbs. since starting the program on July 9 and I know what I've done wrong and they're easy fixes.

Have a good week everyone!!

That much of a gain is not the end of the world, as long as it is not happening consistently! I can gain that much water weight, myself! That is great that you know what you did wrong and are working to correct it. I know someone who used to keep track of points in her head. It seemed to work for her, but I know it wouldn't for me! Plus, it is good to have a record of what you ate, so that if you have a gain or a plateau, you can play detective and figure out what went wrong!

Occasionally I forget and end up having to buy something, like Saturday when I had to get a small burger from Spnic, but it's something I try to do! That way you are in control of what you are eating and it will be healthy.

It's weigh-in day! I am down 1.6 pounds for a total of 60.2!
Wow! Congrats on hitting the 60 lb milestone!

.6 lbs could just be one less visit to the bathroom before WI. The great news is that you are down 10 lbs from where you were less than a month ago! You are still in the learning stage. I keep track online, I don't think I could even stick with the program if I had to write everything down and look up every point.

As for me, WI tonight. I was 2 lbs less this morning than I was a week ago, so I'm hoping for another good WI.

And then Thursday we head to the coast to visit my parents. DH will want to eat a week's worth of treats in three days. The Boardwalk on Thursday for lunch -- Dough Roller pizza, Thrasher's fries, Dumser's Dairyland ice cream -- all food that he must have on each trip. I will try to be good on the Boardwalk. Then my parents of course want to feed us dinner (we don't normally eat a big dinner, lunch is our big meal) and have picked out a pizza place. Scoped out the menu and see that I can order a salad.

Friday will be a big breakfast at a crepe and omelet restaurant that dh loves (they have great seafood omelets and crepes). Their servings are huge but dh doesn't want to share his omelet so I always have to figure out something else. I'll probably go with the ham and cheese crepe and box half of it right away. Then lunch or dinner with my parents and visiting at their house where they will insist on putting food in front of us. They have been the people that have harped the most about my weight, paying me to lose weigh in high school in the early 70s when I weighed a whopping 138. WW top goal for me now is 137. Those were the days of Twiggy and my 15 yo curvaceous body didn't fit the stick figure style of the day. To this day I cannot eat apples and cottage cheese. And I think that is when I messed up my metabolism by becoming paranoid about what I ate. I "matured" at 9yo while some of my friends were still flat-chested at 15. My parents did a lot of comparing me to them and decided that I was the one with the problem.

I'm hoping for a little bit of beach time Friday but I'm not sure that will happen. We have made other trips to see them and not spent a minute on the beach. That's the reason I usually insist we book an ocean front room but the in-season rates are terrible. I could stay at Disney for a week for what a room would cost for one night in Ocean City so we are staying bayside, and that is still costing us more per night than a room at a moderate resort in WDW. Mom and Dad complain that no one visits but they don't realize that just two nights costs us more than dh earns in two weeks by the time we add in gas and food. They are living the retirement life they wanted but it makes it awful hard for their family to see them. And now that they are in the 80s, we aren't too keen on them traveling the five hours to visit us.

Then Saturday we will eat at a crabhouse on the way home. I always retain fluids for days after eating crabs. Needless to say, I'm already not looking forward to next week's WI! I am going to have try really hard to control my intake while visiting my parents.

Awesome! That is quite an accomplishment!

Today someone brought Panera bagels into work. I am being good and not even going near them. This is the second time that bagels were brought in. I am not interested in eating something with that many points. We are having a potluck at work on Friday, and I am making a dessert (a non-WW one). That way I can try this recipe (cannoli cream cups) and eat one. They will not be in my house as a temptation, because I know I could eat the whole thing. As for the rest of the potluck, I think that I will just bring my refular lunch.

Weighed in this morning and I was up no big surprise there. Hubby was down .6 though.

Starting a new week this morning with no excuses. Just my regular routine. Good luck to everyone!

Just a little hiccup in the road. You will do better next week.

I'm in week 4 and LOVE the program. I have to admit that I enjoy the meetings and the weigh ins (something I couldn't ever imagine myself saying). I think you'll find some great people on this thread---lots of WW experience to help us "newbies". Good luck!

Welcome aboard! I think you will enjoy the program. I have been following this program on and off for years and it the only one I have ever had success with. I am aiming to make lifetime this time around, that way I don't have to pay every month. I am excited to hear about your journey!

I was shocked this week -- another 2.4 lbs off! I am now down 44.2 since mid-March. I'm actually starting to look forward to my next annual doctor visit in September.

Awesome job! I would be excited as well. I go to the doctor in October and I am hoping to be down at least 25 pounds since my 6 week postpartum visit.

Thanks for all of the encouraging words!

Great job, pwdebbie! Gives me hope to see how well you are all doing!

Now - what is the best choice when you're dying for dessert? Are the prepackaged WW products best? Do they fulfill the craving? Thanks for any ideas...
